Cam McCaul Creates the Slope-Duro-Cross Challenge

Cam McCaul has always been an innovator in the mountain bike world, whether its pioneering new zones to ride, landing big tricks, or creating new contests like Slope-Duro-Cross, he’s pushing the limits of the sport in all sorts of directions. Wait, but what the hell is Slope-Duro-Cross? It’s a product of necessity, really. Cam had access to piece of land in his backyard near Bend, Oregon, and he decided to turn it into a course that combined all the things he was good at on a bike: riding up a hill, down a hill, and doing trick on jumps.

Naturally, Cam invited a bunch of his best friends over (who all happen to be world-class riders that were in town for Black Sage Fest and Marzocchi Proving Grounds – Sage Cattabriga-Alosa even made a cameo appearance) and held his own kind of backyard barbecue.

Every bike park has that one trail – the one everyone talks about, whether out of excitement or straight up fear. At Whistler, it’s the trails like Dirt Merchant. At Mt. Bachelor, it’s the Rattlesnake trail, a rooty, rocky, and super techy downhill. For local (and international) legend Cam McCaul, it counts as one of his favorite tracks to test his skills.

Antoine Basin in the Kootenay mountains was first sought out for its plethora of valuable minerals: silver, lead, and zinc. The treasures hidden away in these vast and rugged mountains drew miners from all over, hoping to take away a piece of its riches. But as with most mining communities, there was a boom and bust, and Antoine Basin once again became another unassuming valley in the British Columbian backcountry.
